— Workplace lessons you don’t learn in college – Melanie Curtin  (DIERSEN: While I worked for the federal government for almost 30 years, virtually all my superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates were Democrats.  To get promotions, many, if not most, if not virtually all of them helped their Democrat superiors and their Democrat supervisors get rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, older, and/or non-veteran.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/success/tca-workplace-lessons-you-don-t-learn-in-college-20161206-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The lesson: When you start a new job, invest heavily in relationships. Find people with whom you click and ask them to lunch or Starbucks instead of retreating into email during breaks. Ask them what they wish they’d known when they started, and listen closely. Social ties at the office will be critical, so prioritize them; it’ll make your life infinitely easier later on.)

— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Trumps say “Trump rejects CIA intelligence on Russia, daily briefings.”
http://chicago.suntimes.com/news/lynn-sweet-trump-rejects-cia-intelligence-on-russia-daily-briefings/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A few days ago, I talked to a former presidential briefer who said Trump will likely present a challenge to brief, because he seems to have hardened views based on his gut. Now the job will be even more challenging because Trump told Wallace he will take briefings only “when I need it.” And after that, if anything changes, “Immediately call me. . . . I’m like a smart person” and “I don’t have to be told the same thing” every day,” Trump said. So what we have here are two interrelated issues when it comes to Trump and intelligence: He starts his presidency skeptical about the information he will get — and remarkably unconcerned about receiving intelligence on a daily basis. While this may not develop into a Trump war on the intelligence community, it’s not an optimal start.)

THE BLAZE

http://www.theblaze.com/news/2016/12/11/media-omits-key-context-from-trump-saying-he-doesnt-need-daily-intel-briefings/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: But if you listen to the context in which Trump made the comment, you wouldn’t necessarily come away with the idea that the president-elect is somehow making light of national security. Trump said he does receive the classified briefings less frequently than other presidents-elects or presidents have, but offers what appears to be a perfectly reasonable explanation. “I get when I need it. First of all, these are very good people that are giving me the briefings. And I say if something should change from this point, immediately call me. I’m available on one minute’s notice,” Trump said. “I don’t need to be told . . . the same thing every day, every morning – same words. ‘Sir, nothing has changed. Let’s go over it again.’ I don’t need that,” he added, noting that Vice President-elect Mike Pence and others on his team are receiving daily intelligence briefings.)

— New Mothers Derailed by Drugs Find Support in New Hampshire Home – KATHARINE Q. SEELYE  (DIERSEN: One could compare and contrast this home with the one proposed in Wheaton.)
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/11/us/new-mothers-pregnant-opioids-treatment-counseling-new-hampshire.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The young women, soon to be mothers, gathered around a big kitchen table, chatting excitedly about due dates and baby names and even morning sickness. But these were not typical expectant mothers. They had used opioids, mostly heroin and fentanyl. Many had been incarcerated. Few had families they could turn to for help, and the fathers of their babies were out of the picture. Most of these women — tough, sassy, vulnerable — were destined to go through their pregnancies in a shelter, jail or even on the street, fending for themselves as they had often done before. Instead, here they were last week, in the cozy kitchen of a classic 1856 New England farmhouse where the aroma of fresh-baked cornbread filled the air. Set before them was a comfort lunch of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. It was opening day at Hope on Haven Hill, a private house that its owner, Dr. Colene Arnold, had moved her own family out of so these women could move in. “This place is crazy pretty,” said an awe-struck Ariel Robbins Perkins, 24, who is 12 weeks pregnant and arrived here straight from jail. (The New York Times conducted a Facebook Live interview with Ariel that day.) Hope on Haven Hill, financed by $480,000 in federal funds and more than $150,000 in private donations, provides a safe, supportive environment where eight women who are either pregnant or newly postpartum can live while receiving comprehensive treatment and counseling for substance use disorders. Their days will be highly structured, with group therapy, private counseling, childbirth classes, life skills coaching, recovery support services and enrichment programs. Medicaid will reimburse Hope on Haven Hill for the services. Because opioid users are vulnerable to relapsing after they deliver, the women can stay at Hope on Haven Hill for up to a year after giving birth. If they have other children under 5, those children can live here, too. This is part of Haven Hill’s philosophy of keeping mothers and babies together and alleviating the widespread fear among pregnant drug users that if they seek help, their children will be taken away. New Hampshire has two other small facilities for pregnant women with substance use issues. But as the opioid epidemic has worsened, both have long waiting lists. The need is growing, as evidenced by the sharp rise in the number of babies born with neonatal abstinence syndrome, in which the newborn suffers withdrawal from the mother’s drug use. In 2000, the syndrome was diagnosed in 1.5 babies per 1,000 births in New Hampshire; by 2012, that rate had soared to 15 babies per 1,000 births, said Dr. Bonny L. Whalen, a newborn pediatrician at Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H. The rate now, she said, is even higher. New Hampshire’s rate is almost triple the national average, but it is still a major problem across the country. As of 2012, the federal government says, one baby was born suffering from opioid withdrawal every 25 minutes. That national rate, too, is higher now. The federal government said last week that opioid deaths had continued to surge in 2015 and for the first time in the nation’s history surpassed the number of deaths from gun homicides. Emma Lee, a tiny infant born with neonatal abstinence syndrome, was the first baby to arrive at Hope on Haven Hill on opening day last week. She had spent all 32 days of her life in a neonatal intensive care unit because her mother, Amanda, 31, who was homeless for the first six months of her pregnancy, had used heroin for most of that time and then went on methadone. At birth, babies like Emma Lee suddenly lose their opioid supply. Some go into withdrawal and require methadone or morphine to control their symptoms until they can be weaned off. “Her withdrawals were pretty severe,” said Amanda, who did not want her last name used, as she cradled Emma Lee in their sunny bedroom at Hope on Haven Hill. While in the hospital, the baby had difficulty eating. Her hands and legs shook with tremors. “It was really hard as a mom to see your new baby go through that,” Amanda said. “I know for myself, I know what it feels like to withdraw, and it’s pretty terrible to imagine a tiny helpless baby going through that.” Hope on Haven Hill does not accept active drug users. Most of the women have only recently stopped using opioids — in New Hampshire these days, that usually means heroin and fentanyl. But they cannot detox, because going through withdrawal causes dehydration and increases the risk of miscarriage or of the mother’s self-medicating with opioids to stave off the painful effects of withdrawal. So most of these women are on some kind of medication assisted treatment, either methadone or buprenorphine, which is marketed as Suboxone or Subutex. Erica Vallee, 24, who is five months pregnant, is among those at Hope on Haven Hill on Subutex. She has used heroin since she was 18 and has been in and out of rehab and jail. She says becoming pregnant was “the only thing” that made her stop using illegal drugs. But like others here, she is afraid of relapsing. “I can’t be left alone because I don’t trust myself,” she said as she scrubbed the dishes in the kitchen sink after lunch. The hope is that the stable, nurturing environment of Haven Hill will provide enough support and encouragement for these women to maintain their sobriety. Dr. Arnold, who owns the Haven Hill house, planned the program with Kerry Norton, a prenatal nurse with whom she worked at a nearby women’s health center. About two years ago, the health center started seeing more and more pregnant women with addiction issues who were not being treated for one reason or another. “They didn’t have prenatal care,” said Dr. Arnold, an obstetrician and gynecologist. “They’d show up at the birth center and deliver and have nothing, and their child would be taken out of their custody and they’d be out on the street again.” Among those who showed up at the health center was Abi Lizotte. She was homeless, pregnant and had been using heroin for at least six years, after her older sister had died from an overdose. Ms. Norton, whose own son had overdosed around this same time, took an interest in her, but Ms. Lizotte skipped appointments and Ms. Norton could not find a treatment program that would take her. “I’m an educated nurse who knows the system, and I couldn’t navigate it,” Ms. Norton recalled. “I thought, ‘What is everyone else doing?’ And it blew my mind when I realized what everyone else was doing, which was dying.” In June 2015, after a lengthy and exhaustive struggle, Ms. Norton got Ms. Lizotte — by this point eight months pregnant — into treatment in Nashua. That night, Ms. Norton, an insomniac, went home and took to Facebook, where she asked if anyone knew Ellen DeGeneres or Oprah Winfrey or anyone rich enough to establish a treatment program for pregnant women derailed by drugs. Dr. Arnold, a fellow insomniac, wrote back: “I don’t know Ellen and I don’t know Oprah, but I have this house and I’ve wanted to do this same thing for three years now.” The two started brainstorming and conceived the plan for Hope on Haven Hill. They credit Ms. Lizotte, now 24, sober and the mother of a healthy boy, as their inspiration. Since then, they have overcome mounds of red tape, secured the home’s financing and achieved nonprofit charitable status. In September, Dr. Arnold moved her family — her husband, two children, two dogs and a cat — to a smaller home while workers renovated the Haven Hill house to meet the building codes for a residential center. Workers refinished the wide-plank pine floors, and volunteers came in with buckets of paint as new furniture, beds and linens arrived. After a ribbon-cutting ceremony last week, Timothy Rourke, the chairman of the New Hampshire Governor’s Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, said in an interview that while there was much to celebrate, it was important to remember that the state is in the middle of a crisis. “We’re still looking at a death rate that is way too high and wait lists that are way too long, and many people are asking for help that doesn’t come fast enough,” he said. “Hope on Haven Hill should be a call for all of us to do better.” Its doors barely open, Hope on Haven Hill already has a lengthy waiting list of its own.)
